Since recent events of many girls and women getting raped and killed in South Africa, an anger rose in the country. I mean who wouldn't be angry. So many women and children have been kidnapped for who knows what, many have also been raped and murdered. It has honestly only gotten worse.

Did you know that:                                                             > 41% of South Africa's rape victims are children       > 25% of girls and 17% of boys will be sexually abused by the time they turn 18 - that is 42% of minors in South Africa                                                     

That is still 2 out of 10 minors.   

In a study conducted between September 2013 and February 2015, 9717 people between the ages of 15 and 17. 4086 children were interviewed in their schools, 35.4% were sexually abused but only 16.8% were reported. 5631 were interviewed in their homes, 26.3% were sexually abused but only 14.6% were reported. That is 61% and out of the reported cases, 36.8% were boys and 33.9% were girls whoch is very interesting, don't you think. 

Did you know that a child is abducted every 5 hours in South Africa? Incredible right? It only gets worse. 1.2 million children are trafficked per year and only 78% are able to be recovered. The trafficked children are used as prostitutes or slaves and some are sent overseas for the same purposes. Scary, right ?

I want to urge all of you to support the idea of making Self Defense as a part of our compulsory school curriculums. We know that these atrocities are not ending anytime soon, we should at least know how to defend ourselves and have a chance of getting away. We feel like there is no one we can trust, especially in this day an age. We did not fight for our freedom just to have it taken away by people who just do no care. All these marches are good but we feel like all we have been doing is marching and nothing has been happening for decades over. We need to know how to protect ourselves because, at the end of the day, we can only trust ourselves. I don't know about you but I am sick and tired of being scared. It is time for change and it is up to us and I definitely will not just let this die down. Will you?

Equality forever, Justice Now!
